Bret Bicoy is a gifted and inspiring speaker that moves easily from inspirational keynote speeches before large crowds to technical presentations on virtually any aspect of charitable giving.

Bret also provides strategic planning services to numerous organizations that are trying to be deliberate in creating their future. If the calendars can line up correctly, he'd be glad to assist with your planning.
A seasoned non-profit executive with 30 years of experience as a fundraiser, community organizer, and foundation president, Bret launched Bicoy Philanthropic Advisors in 2007 to assist charities in several ways:
Whether you need a keynote speaker, a fund development workshop, or strategic planning services, Bret has the experience and knowledge to help you.
In years past, Bret has also served as a consultant on major fundraising campaigns and planned giving programs, offered workshops on diversity and inclusive practices, counseled on community and civic engagement, and helped with foundation management. However, Bret’s position as President & CEO of the Door County Community Foundation makes it difficult for him to commit to long-term, ongoing projects. While he occasionally consults with long-time clients in these areas, he typically does not enter into long-term consulting work with new clients unless there is an exciting initiative, or particularly challenging issue, to be addressed.
However, he continues to welcome inquiries from any charity if he can be of assistance in more limited ways.
If you're looking for an inspiring and informative keynote speaker, need someone to offer a workshop on virtually any aspect of charitable giving, or would like an experienced non-profit executive to guide you through a strategic planning process, Bret is excited about the possibility of working with you.
